Laura Fritz, O.T.R/L., is an Occupational Therapist with over 30 years of experience and advanced training in CranioSacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Zero Balancing, and Lymph Drainage. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on approach that utilizes the body’s natural healing properties to restore the vitality and health of the whole body. Myofascial Release is a hands-on technique that involves sustained pressure into connective tissue restrictions. Myofascial Release is safe, gentle, and consistently effective in producing results that eliminate pain, restore motion, and last. Zero Balancing is effective in reducing inflammation and asymmetries in the structural framework as well as balancing the whole system.
By combining these modalities, Laura offers a unique approach to helping the client find relief from acute and chronic pain, emotional trauma, and imbalances which have not responded to traditional therapy, medication, or surgery. Often symptoms such as headaches are warning lights that one is out of balance in his or her internal environment. Laura is effective in enabling clients to restore balanced, pain free active lives in order to make profound lifelong changes.
The word “dragonfly” means transformation for adaptability in life, and Laura has chosen to embody that spiritual meaning with her private practice “Dragonfly: A Transformation through Therapy.” Her office hours are by appointment only. Laura is also readily accessible by phone to accommodate your busy schedule. She provides effective gentle hands-on treatment in a private, individualized, environment with the goal of restoring you to total wellness. Her purpose is to be of service.

Your lymphatic system plays a number of critical roles in your body. It acts as a garbage collector, filtering out bacteria and toxins that can cause disease. Lymphatic drainage removes toxins and bacteria from your skin, reduces sinus pressure and congestion, helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and puffy eyes, increases collagen production, promotes faster healing for sports injuries, and so much more. When lymph flows, everything else flows.
